About Me

Hi. I'm J (they/them) Yes, my legal name is one letter. Why Wyrdfae? A bunch of reasons including a lifelong fascination with Dune and now I'm stuck with it I guess... Rating - I always rate unless there was an issue. If I don't get a rating for something I will follow up. I really want my swaps to get where they need to go.

Favorite books and podcasts

I listen to audio books and podcasts while crafting, art-ing, chore-doing. I have been known to pick up a paper book from time to time, though. Books: HGttG series by Douglas Adams was one of my first book loves. I read this in high school originally and my friends and I would read it aloud to passer-bys. Silly people we were. David Rakoff, Alok Vaid-Menon, Anne Leckie, MurderBot by Martha Wells, Daniel Lavery, Well written sci-fi graphic novels with breathtaking art ( ok, I should have just said Monstress), Janet Mock, Felix Ever After, Witch Boy, Audre Lorde, Danez Smith, Brene Browne, Anne Patchett, Philip K. Dick, Octavia Butler, Packing for Mars, Louise Erdrich, Saga,

Podcasts: so many of these I or the show have fallen off but good examples none the less Dear Prudence (Danny Lavery's run), Welcome to Night Vale, Snap Judgement, Buffering the Vampire Slayer, the Gayly Prophet(Hashtag ruthless), RadioLab, The Unmute Podcast, Jay and Miles Xplain the X-men, American Hysteria, You're Wrong About, etc...it is literally never quiet.

Movies and TV

Past faves: Loki, Buffy, Lovecraft Country, Whip-it, The Good Place, Knives Out, MoonLight, Orphan Black, Umbrella Academy, She-Ra, Get Out, Stargate, Farscape, X-files, 30Rock, 5th Element, Empire Records, Bladerunner, Star Trek, any space-opera show, The Avengers, Parks and Rec, Terrible horror movies that are unintentionally funny, Avatar the Last Air-Bender (cartoon) and Korra, Pose, Good Girls, X-men, Work in Progress, Umbrella Academy...

Music

My favorite artists are Neko Case and Janelle Monae. Also: Dorian Electra, Tacocat, AhMerAhSu, John-Allison Weiss, Mal Blum, LP, Against Me!, Rae Spoon, Rilo Kiley, Worriers, and so many more. If anyone wants to exchange spotify playlist, I am always up for that.

Dislikes

No. Scented. Items. no cigarette smoke and no stuff covering cigarette smoke. I am allergic to most highly scented stuff.
general dislikes sexism, racism, transphobia, homophobia, fatphobia/diet culture, name calling etc. please no food, candy, tea etc, don't want religious stuff (unless you count tarot as religious) or anything trying to change my opinion about something.

It bears repeating, no scented items.

General Swapping


Important note:

I am massively cutting back on swaps and am trying to catch up on Decos, FBs, bags etc that I have. I no longer want to do any of these except a small amount of decos and sticker postcards/books.


items I would like: Handmade stuff , zines, poker cards with interesting backs or fronts, curios/curiosities, inchies, atcs, origami paper strips for lucky stars, small hand made things, blank notecards/artsy non-touristy postcards in moderation natural fiber yarn about 6 yards long so I can maybe use it for a striped scarf, other stationary and memo pages, random stuff in themes I like or you think I might like are also fun.

Random things I like in no comprehensible order to help direct but not dictate themes to send: Sci-fi, Art, LGBTQ themes, non-binary, peacocks, blue (esp peacock blue and electric blue) halloween, fantasy, space, Pop Surrealism, Basquiat, poetry, Kay Ryan, bright colors, outsider art, sentimental circus, Dr. Who, Buffy, Frida Kahlo, Chiho Aoshima, paisley, orchids, Peacocks, celestial, more bright colors, studio Ghibli, possums, moths, bats, Alison Bechdel, tarot cards, Xena, weird art, Rainbow Brite, hexagons, Remedios Varo, Invader Zim, rainbows, stars, Warhol, Elliot Page, zentangle and other bold decorative black and white designs, any interesting color combo really, bird, butterfly and cat motifs, celtic knots/book of kells/nordic art, musicals, beer and wine, and other stuff.

Stardew Valley - learned I LOVE video games since discovering stardew. have played a lot of Terraria, moonstone island, Palia, basically cozy or building games, creature collection, etc

Kawaii - I used to mostly do kawaii swaps here but currently I'm obsessed with Sentimental Circus but most of my favorite cute stickers and paper right now is from etsy shops.

Artist Trading Cards/inchies/mailart - while this is subjective, I prefer art that is meaningful to you rather than just fit my themes. I like my themes - just want to see your take on the world. Art is about expressing YOU :) I make ATCs a variety of ways. Some hand drawn or painted, some mixed media collage, and I know my way around photoshop. None of them are very conventional. Totally up for one-on-one swaps if my description sounds interesting.

So I do want to mention that I send when I say I do and rate when I receive. I always put on enough or more postage to my understanding of the regulations. Different post office employees sometimes see them differently. If you receive something with postage due, let me know and I will send you stamps.

wish list

Please let me know if you want to take any excess decos or FBs, bags etc.

Comment: I was so happy when I saw that I was your partner! This deco has a very inappropriate theme, indeed! I have a better idea of who to send this to next than I do of what I'm going to do with my page! -lol-

Thank you so much J for finishing and mailing my Flora deco to me. What a treat to see it again with all of the new plant life art.

12/18/23 - Hi J - I sent you an email and PM to check your address to make good on a 6 deco swap I owed you. I have them all ready to go, was just checking on your address. If you have a chance, would you consider verifying it with me? I'll send either way. Best, DSweeny

I received your extra "thank you" decos today... thanks for sending them! I look forward to adding to them. :)

Thanks for the full deco! I thought the page looked very familiar; the lady that made it removed my page from another deco. Hopefully it was from a page I did in a deco of hers.
